Why can't planes fly over Antarctica?

Firstly, there's a lack of any real need to fly over the South Pole. There's a lot less airline traffic in the far reaches of the southern hemisphere than the northern hemisphere. For example, the southern hemisphere doesn't have the equivalent of those typically busy sub polar routes between North America and Asia.
